Orienteering race 2:11:00 
OCIN's Goat event at Hueston Woods.
Third place again. Decent effort, but a bad skip choice, and my one real navigating mistake came at the second to last control and cost me second place.
Chose to skip 16, which was a long leg, but almost on the line between 15 and 17. The reason I skipped it was that it allowed me to avoid the muddy woods and trails and get out on a paved road for a long stretch. It looks like I picked up about 4 1/2 minutes doing this.
The better skip would have been 8 to 10b to 11, which I had strongly considered but rejected due to the perceived navigating difficulties of 8 to 10b. But the route from 10b to 11 would have been MUCH better than my route from 10a to 11. The funny thing is that this skip is obvious on the map and I probably would have chosen it except that we had 15 minutes to look at the map prior to the start. I utilized this time to talk myself out of the best skip.
The course notes mentioned that there was one really nasty control, and I convinced myself that 10b was it, due to its proximity to a bunch of dark green. But now I think that the nasty one was actually 21, which was on a knifes-edge spur between two horrendously steep ravines. I spotted this control easily, and it seemed like I could almost reach out and touch it across this narrow, but bottomless chasm. I considered jumping across, but had a vision of myself hitting the opposite slope and slipping down into OCIN reentrant oblivion. If you've seen Monty Python's Holy Grail, and I know you have, think The Gorge of Eternal Peril except with no Bridge of Death.
